Comment: Mentioned in Paus. 6.13.10, these unnamed sons of Pheidolas were presumably from Corinth, like there father (Paus. 6.13.9). Pausanias asserts they won 2 Olympian and an Isthmian victory in horse racing (keles hippos). I follow Farrington (2012), no. 1.22 and p. 105-6 note 220 for the dating: he makes use of Pausanias' mention of Olympian records, which suggest one of the Olympian victories occurred in 508 B.C. - estimating the career of a racing horse, Farrington suggests the victories fall between 512-504. - PK
